digital marketing, managed.
All digital, all day.
We've got our hands in a multitude of digital pots, and we're always looking for the next digital trend. Our company was built on social media marketing, and it's the social aspect that drives everything we do.
Text Message MarketingText messages are the most opened form of communication on a mobile device. GC Text is our newest marketing tactic that leads to more eyeballs looking at your promotions, events, notifications, and more through text messaging. It’s quick and easy to get started and begin growing your audience today!

We offer THREE awesome Promotion Packages that will keep your audience engaged and excited about your brand.

Our videographers will capture all the great moments at your grand opening/community events, our writers will write up the scripts for your virtual tours, and we’ll promote your campaigns through the art of Video Marketing.

To recap, people noticed that the organic reach of their posts on Facebook had started drastically dwindling in 2017 and had rightfully started to stress out. This was a big deal! Instead of calming everyone’s fears, Mark Zuckerberg confirmed the worst and announced that Facebook would be changing the News Feed (again) and the algorithm that dictates what users see would focus more on family and friends’ content over public content (i.e. a business or…read more
